Hethersett Hawks/Myhill Decorators staged round seven of the South East & Eastern Grand Prix.

A total of 41 riders took to a near perfect track on a fine afternoon and there was some excellent racing.

Suffolk riders dominated the younger age groups as usual with wins for Luca Woodhouse (Kesgrave Under-8), Charlie Parr (Kesgrave Under-10), Noah Woodhouse (Kesgrave Under-12), Lewis Brinkhoff (Kesgrave Under-14) and Reece Johnson (Ipswich Under-18). Home rider Owen Wells took third place in the Under-18s nursing a broken thumb.

Home riders made a big impact in the seniors’ and veterans’ competitions.

Leigh Cossey, Harley Hamill and Danny Machin took first, second and fourth in the seniors while Glyn Morgan held off stiff challenges to win the veterans.

Meanwhile Daniel Longlands won the Hethersett Under-16 title with a maximum in midweek.
